“Marsh Beast is the best!”
Reviewed May 22, 2012

Having gone on an airboat ride in the Everglades, I thought that the Blue Cypress Swamp tour would not be as good - it wasn't, it was 100% better! It was exciting and beautiful - we saw many alligators and birds and flowers. I highly recommend this tour. Capt Kenny was knowledgeable and told us many interesting facts about the area and the wildlife. Loved it as did my whole family.

“Capt. Kenny's Knowledgeable and quick!”
Reviewed April 7, 2012

Skimming over the swamplands, with the greatest of ease, Capt. Kenny's airboat was brightly colored like Kermit the Frog (not necessarily the 'Old Florida' feel). We saw plenty of alligators, large and small, several egrets, a few great blue herons, and lots of Osprey. Only trouble was knowledgeable Ole Capt. Kenny whizzed by some of the birds too, too fast (for this novice photographer) to really get the photo op or gather in the precious nature moment. WE wore hats (which were held on by the microphone head sets) , but sun screen and a bottle of water would be a must if the day was any hotter. The two 80 year olds in our group had a bit of trouble getting on to the boat which was not launched from a dock but grounded on the slant of the waterway.

“Beast is the Best!”
Reviewed March 22, 2012

Family and friends were visiting from the cold north. I am a Florida native, biology professor, and have been on many airboat rides around the State of Florida. Kenny at Marsh Beast gave a great tour! Respectful of the wildlife, knowledgeable, beautiful airboat, met us at the dock on time, narration through comfy headsets...had a GREAT time with my visitors!

“Great way to spend the day!!!”
Reviewed February 6, 2012

I was so happy I did my homework ahead of time and read reviews for airboat tours in our area. Within just a couple of minutes being out on the water with Captain Kenny and his co-captain John I knew I made the right choice. Both of them were warm and welcoming and very knowledgeable about the area and it's wildlife. You can tell them are familiar with the lake because they knew the best spots for viewing baby gators as well as there larger counterparts. Kenny made sure everyone on the boat was able to get a good view of the critters and made sure that everyone had time to take ample pics before moving on to our next location. We saw ospreys nesting and building nests. We even came upon on Osprey dining on a freshly caught fish. Tons of local foul and of course gators. I didn't think an hour would be much time for the tour but I have to tell you it felt so much longer. The pace was perfect - you aren't rushed and it's not too slow moving. I just really can't even say enough. We're looking forward to trying their Okeechobee tour next.
